I have written a tutorial on how to set up one (or many) Safex node(s) using Vultr. If you register new via the link in the article, you should receive a free credit of $50 ! Enjoy.
Update: Now including:
- Troubleshooting commands for synchronization error, screen freeze and killed process due to insufficient RAM.
- Creation of a server snapshot and import of snapshot in a newly deployed server to host more nodes with a few clicks.
If you want to run a node from a Google instance, commands are the same but:
- When connecting to your server, you can open the ssh directly via a browser window.
- In order to have a full node with incoming peers, add a new firewall rule and open all ports for all instances.
Edit 3: In case you have no incoming peers on your nodes at home, open ports 29390-29394 for testnet and ports 17400-17404 for mainnet (thanks, Lomax!).
